Open Source is showing up in a all kinds of places beyond computer
programs which of course are used in all realms.
I just heard about one new to me...
Open Agriculture Initiative MIT was featured on
National Public Radio's program "Splendid Table"
Global data collection and the future of indoor urban farming
The urban farming movement takes many forms, both indoors and
outdoors: school gardens, community vegetable patches, fish farms in
tanks. Scientist Caleb Harper believes that indoor urban farming
specifically can create the best tasting, most nutritious, and least
energy intensive crops anywhere in the world. Harper is director of
the Open Agriculture Initiative (OpenAg) at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab. He and a global collection of
“nerd farmers” are working on a Food Computer, which closely
detects – and allows you to adjust – the growing conditions of any
plant in the room.
